Still looking at getting a vintage and have been looking and reading up them.

Any thoughts on either of these?

Personally I'd prefer the sprint, it looks in good shape.

The Sprint by a mile. Especially with the bench seat included. Jump on it.

Why take any chances, just get them both! Or whichever one appeals to YOU the most, neither is 'better' although the Sprint will be more valuable to most ppl. Without laying on hands and eyes, they both look legit and are priced reasonably in a rising market with dwindling inventory. The funny thing is 2200 for the VNB and 2800 for the Sprint is more what I'd expect. If you are serious , I'd pickone and pull the trigger, these two won't last.

The Sprint looks nice.

It's not an American market bike, but looks like it's been here a while.

I think the VNB is a little high maybe closer to 18

The sprint at 2 would be good.

Expect that you could ride either thru the season and then once winter sets in expect an overhaul on electrics, cables and probably at least seals. But if it's open... a full soft parts rebuild and then be ready to rock next season.

The Sprint has been sold and I haven't heard back on the VNB yet.

If the sprint was legit at that price in the UK people would have bitten arms off as so cheap; expensive over here. Shame its been sold. I do absolutely loathe single seats on any scooters; dual bench seat all day every day.
